    Hi all

    I have been trying to potty train Oscar for a week and a bit. If i put him on the potty he will quite often wee but won't go on or tell me himself if he needs to go and just wees his pants. He has been dry for the past 5 nights and holds it in until i put him on the potty when he gets up and lets it all out so im sure he knows what the sensations are. i'm getting so frustrated that he's not telling me he wants to go though am outwardly remainly calm as i don't want to give him issues. The poo thing is just not happening, pants floor and nappy, never potty but i know that comes later so am not too worried.

    He can count to 7 and knows his colours including black, white and purple, and most of his shapes although his favourite word at the mo is triangle so lots of things are that!

    Snowgirl - hope Zara gets better soon, thats quite a high temp. Osc does the same as wolf - ill ask and he says no then 30 secs later he pees his pants. He is going through such an argumentative stage though that i don't know if he's saying no because he doesnt think he needs to go or just to be difficult! (He argues which way we we turn out of his dad's work every night even tough we always go the same way then throws an epi when we don't go his way!)

    take care all

    Julie x

    oh yes - we have stickers too - and i'm tending to let him watch more cartoons to get him to sit down, although he's now getting the picture abit more so i'm cutting back on those but definately still the stickers!

    Maybe when you ask and they say no, give it a go anyway, then you might catch it lol

    Mel so glad things are settling, good luck with moving back in together

Good job id bought some weetbix kids yesterday that had some free wiggles stickers in it so i could give him a better one than the wee stickers!

    Hey there... LOL @ all the TT stories.

    Matilda had been going really well & got a smartie everytime she did anything on the toilet. Unfortunately she decided poos are for nappes so we have yet to win that battle. Then last week she decided that she didn't like the toilet at home. She won't use a potty or the toilet seat we bought. She said she wants a smaller toilet like at kindy. Ah well.... we'll get her back into it. I think alot has to do with it getting colder.

    arrrrrrrrg, my neighbour's boys (4 but disabled and 2 years and 3 months) both nappy free since last week. BOOM they can do it... Wolf refuses to take off his nappies these days... I know it's not a competition but I can't help feeling bummed.
    My other neighbour's 22 month old is also nappy free... for a while actually. It's just a tad frustrating... I am just a bit relieved that my 3rd neighbour's daughter who is 2 months older is not interested, just like Wolf.

    The other day, when it was really hot, I actually took off his nappies and he POOED on the floor. I only noticed because he went "uh oh, I've got to pee, mama"
    I turned to look and there were 2 little rabbit poos on the floor. Then the next day, he actually dropped one on the floor while he was getting books out of the bookshelf. I have the feeling he does not notice poo coming at all. I thought poo would be more obvious to feel? Who knows... oh well... he is barely 2.5 years so I should probably relax but I just feel so weird when everyone around me with younger kids has them toilet trained...

    *sigh*

    Other than that all is well. Wolf is so cute, I could just eat him up sometimes. He kisses me often and tells me out of the blue that he loves me and I just adore those moments. I wish he could stay this age forever... I love him so much.

    Zara is so funny, she cracks me up. Today she took Spiderman and taunted Wolf with it and then ran off. Wolf ran after her and both ran around me, sitting on the floor and Zara was just cackling. She thought it was the funniest thing how she had made him chase her and get angry. Sneaky little minks.

    That sounds adorable snowy! Well my 2 are minks too.I had a tent inside(pop up one) and they were both in there.All was quiet so i went to investigate and millana had squirreled wiggles bickies from the cupboard and they were both having a picnic in there! was so cute and i was lucky to get pics!
    And millana is doing so-so with toilet training too.When i put big girl undies on she says millana do wee wee on potty,big girl but she tends to forget and will wee in her pants first and the rest in the potty.Ive started a sticker chart but its only working some of the time.I feel like im a bad mum and havnt been strict enough but i dont want to force her either.Pooey what others think i suppose!

    Hi everyone!

    I have been trying to catch up on everybody's bubba's, they all sound so happy and healthy!

    Aidan is wonderful, a real Mummy's boy, but is coming out of his shell more and more. Seems to be very gently and loving, always kissing his baby brother. He counts very well, up till 13 and then gets lost!, knows the main colours and loves singing the alphabet, he recognises a few letters, his favourite is 'dubblewoo'! Def not ready to be toilet trained, did one wee on the toilet about 4 months ago but is showing no 'ready' signs at all. But I am going to start sitting him on the toilet before bed every night. He still has a day sleep, around 2hours. So much more I could tell you!

    Hi Caddie, good to hear from you again!! So cute re. the both of them in the tent with a pack of cookies Wolf had this day the other day where he just kept kissing Zara and when I had her on my arm he said "Give me my sister, I want to kiss her" ..

    Hi Jessica! Very clever of Aiden with the counting. I find Wolf can recite the numbers but if I put things in front of him to count, he can't count past 2 or 3 (he just keeps rattling out numbers even though there is just 3 items there).. I guess they will learn it later?

    Hi Snowy, I love the ticker pic, they are both adorable! When Aidan counts he points to each thing, so I think he knows what he is doing, which I thought was pretty amazing! On the other hand I was for awhile worried about his socialisation, he was very clingy and not confident, but that seems have turned around only in the past month. I still find he cries more than other kids his age, i.e. if he is fighting with another kid for a toy, he will give up and cry, whereas the other kid will perserve, or just get over it! He talks really well but I still think he gets frustrated (he is gentle but on the other hand he is a bit 'pushy' with kids when he wants something'). I am hoping he can find a balance of confident but not pushy soon!

    I everyone! OMG it has been so long since I was in here...Since I had Matilda I really haven't been on here much except for the last week or so and I feel like I have missed so much that has been going on. I am so sorry that Mooshie left, I am feeling a bit down that I didn't really chat with her at all in the last few months

    Well things here are fine. Grace is gorgeous and a terror all at once! Hee hee. Toilet training isn't really happening, well it is but verrrry slowly. She still wants to wear nappies but every now and then she will wear her knickers and do wees in her potty. She knows what to do - just doesn't want to do it!

    She talks beautifully and has some fantastic tanties at times too. She loves going to kindy to drop Harry off - she can't wait until she can go, but that won't be until 2009. But it is a fantastic kindy.

    Ok i am going to go back and catch up on posts

    Just an update on Lily.

    Her talking has taken off like a rocket. She never shuts up lol. She has great manners. She can count to 5 and can count down from 3. Like 3,2,1. Very clever. Fav thing at the moment is Tigger. all she does is bounce around going 'boing boing like tigger' Thinking i may have to make a tigger b'day cake for her!

    The tantrums have died down quite a lot which is good. although she's very jealous of Charlie at times. the other day he was stand up holding onto the lounge and she pushed him in the head to make him fall. Poor little thing. But after a time out she did say sorry and gave him a hug.

    Anyway that's all for now, better go.

    I hope everyone else is well.

    Bon, Oh no, I didn't realise Mooshie left until you said it and went back and saw that she is no longer an active user
    Did she say bye bye somewhere? I tried to search but since she is no longer active, I can't find any posts by her. That is such a shame

    Can she still read in here? I guess... ? If you do, Michelle (mooshie), we miss you and we hope that maybe some day you come back!!
